"washington journal" is next. host: >> host: the white house is to eating -- is disputing claims. the u.s. ambassador to madrid will appear to discuss buying in the country after press reports that the nsa collected information on phone calls. chiefs from those and other countries are expected to travel to the u.s. to discuss those issues. this topic, even on the sunday talk shows yesterday. for our first 45 minutes, when it comes to physically monitoring by the nsa on our allies, we want to get your thoughts on whether the u.s. should rethink spying on allies. here's how you can tell us this morning. you can also reach out to us on social media. you can always send us an e-mail to journal at c-span.org. stores today and yesterday stemming on new developments when it comes to monitoring of ally activity by the nsa. new about obama spying. thatsa denies reports obama was told in 2010 of nsa spying on angela merkel and allowed it to continue. on sunday, the german tabloid siding unknow
players threatened to go on strike over plans for a new super tax on the richest people in france. let's aw at this hour, star with the latest leak from former nsa contractor edward snowden. says theington post" national security agency has been hacking be data links that connect google and yahoo! around the world. laways the agency skirt the by collecting data from millions of local web users via underwater fiber-optic cables. kate moody explains. >> world leaders, foreign citizens, and internet giants, the latest victims of the national security agency's surveillance programs according to intelligence linked by edward snowden. the nsa has admitted to the program to access internet user accounts but described new reports that infiltrated yahoo! and google databases as factually incorrect. breakings not an essay into any databases. it would be illegal for us to do that. -- does collect information on terrorists and our national intelligence priorities, but we are not authorized to go into a u.s. company's servers and take data. we have to go to a court process for doing that. >> but th
in the private marketplace are, one, requesting to be comprehensive. two, you are going to have tax incentives, tax rebates for millions, as many as 6 or 7 million americans to get into this program. so they can get health coverage. >> who pays for that, julianne? who picks up the tab on rebates? >> that was part of the aca, that was part of the law. that was part of -- it comes through a tax rebate. >> let's talk about where the money comes from. originally when president obama pushed this, and turned a bill into a law, the cbo said it was going to be about $900 billion. now, they have upped that. the cbo has under that number to $1.8 trillion. we are not even talking about these additional insion incentives and rebates which is only going to add though that number. >> one how is it paid for tax increases like the medical equipment tax and increase on capital gains. there is no question there are some taxes that are paying for this secondly, the cbo also made it clear that the healthcare law was going to be a net reducer in terms of our federal deficit. >> julian, i have toil, president obama
to raise the minimum wage in the garden state and another in colorado that would increase taxes by $950 million in one year and restructure the way that state funds its public schools. we're back with james freeman and steve moore. let's go to colorado first. it's a very interesting state, trending left politically with a kind of new coalition of cultural liberals and hispanics. and women. leading to a democratic majority there. and they could take another big step to the left with this ballot initiative. explain. >> no question about it. you're exactly right. colorado is one of those states that has moved more to the left than just about any other state in the country. partially because of huge democratic liberal money that's gone into that state. what they've now put on the ballot is a ji gaigantic income tax increase to pay for more money for schools. big power play on the left to expand the size of the state government. the income tax, if raised would get rid of a traditional policy of a low flat tax. i would make the case one of the reasons colorado has been a high growth state is
on the house position in terms of the resolution they passed back in the spring which had no tax increases, no revenue increases, assumed to the repeal of the affordable care act. it is the antithesis to the senate position. thesenate budge was resolution they passed. they had increased references -- revenues and a differences are so great it is unlikely there will be any kind of agreement to raise revenues because it could not pass in the house of representatives. host: does that doom this effort to failure? guest: now, if people had expectations that this would be a large deficit reduction package achieved by the hope for a deadline of december 13, i think that is off the table. i think there is a real possibility, not of a grand bargain, but of a bargain that will be granted that we got a bargain at all. the american public believes that congress is dysfunctional and cannot achieve anything. at a minimum, it seems there is a good possibility that both mrs. murray and mr. ryan can come together on some sort of package that will show that the house and senate can work together in a minima
subsidizes health care for people under 65 is through a tax provision, where if your employer pays your cash, you pay taxes on it and if he pays in health insurance, you don't pay tax. this reduces revenue by $300 billion a year. if it were a government program, it would be one of the largest within the federal government. the way the subsidy is structured, the higher the tax rate, the more it is worth. ted cruz, his wife is a highly paid investment banker, they get their insurance through a cadillac plan at goldman sachs and it cost $40,000 a year in 2009. to get a sense, family health insurance would cost 15,000 or 16,000, well more than twice as expensive as normal. the tax benefit is worth about $15,000. now the cost to insure a family of four on medicaid at that time was about $11,000. so that it's not that their health plan cost more than medicaid but the part subsidized by taxpayers cost more than the entirety of medicare coverage. what the affordable care act does is shift around the subsidies, it takes the money and puts it to people who need it either because they have low incomes

was talking about an opportunity society, talking about low tax rates, trying to help everyone be their best in america. coming from where i came from, it all kind of resonated little bit. i've got 11 brothers and sisters. my dad owned a bar. i got brothers and sisters on every rung of the economic ladder. the idea of an opportunity society was kind of who i was. over the course of the 1970s and 1980s, these two people, especially during the 1970s -- by the end of the 1970s, i was a republican -- i had a reagan bumper sticker on in 1980 during the primary. sorry, jeb. in 1988, i found myself a manchester -- in a manchester, new hampshire, if you will recall. in february of 1988, a lowly state rep, business guy goes to manchester, new hampshire to my buddy jack kemp. i was at this dinner with jack and joanne. there were a bunch of these big- time congressmen. the next day, i got my assignment to knock on doors. i was assigned to go to the city dump. i thought, what the hell is this? i went to the dump because in manchester, new hampshire, they don't pick up garbage. you have to take it to the
taxes on people who benefitted the most in last regime, republicans' to cut spending willy-nilly. neil: no, i don't see a lot of spending ideas offered on the table by any party. i see. saying, record tax revenue we're getting, we want more. we' more of, that i don't hear offers for more spending cuts. >> no, let's be clear, the president of united states got his big tax increase on the rich. last year, 600 billion. that is -- >> it is working. >> he is coming back to the well he wants another $1.1 trillion tax increase in next 10 years, in his budget proposal he increases the debt by $8.2 trillions, that never comes close -- -- >> robert, on both sides, the urgency is taken away when you whoop and scream and rejoice at a deficit that is only 600 billion-dollars, we remember it was 60 billion-dollars, jimmy carter said it was all like a fiscal war. i think that was then, this is now. we tolerate what is still very, very worrisome news. nancy pelosi said, cupboard is bear, there is no room to cut, harry reid said americans are onboard hiking taxes more, like we live in a make believe wo

for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're asking a different question, which is are we doing 100% income verification on everyone. >> and subsidy eligibility verification. >> yes. so part of the question in the application process is are you depending on your parents, on your parents tax plan so that is part of the questioning that goes on and if so we move them in that direction. more importantly, part of what you're asking is the income verification, whic
the pike? how many taxes are in there? nice that it is covering people, but when will it -- what is it going to cost us? i think that americans really want to know and it is not out there in black-and-white. you should be able to look and see. there are a lot of important things that have been done wrong. the president has lied to us. thank you. host: a little bit more about the book "double down." it is just coming out. even after obama named hillary clinton as secretary of state, finding their wounds, he could barely endure spending time with the clinton. he rarely contacted his democratic predecessor in the years after taking office. after midterm losses for his party, the incumbent and his inner circle realized that they still needed the popular mr. clinton. they golfed together in 2011 in an effort to get closer together. they did not even finish 18 holes. r. obama succinctly expressed his view of mr. clinton saying that he liked him in doses. to thema, who is known test campaign donor nations said that he could not name his top five vendors. he says he has no idea. after me

.a.o. is releasing a report. it just shows some 8,400 people receive security clearances, while they had tax debts, which is a vulnerability, got security clearances. and the vast majority of those were top secret security clearances. so our process is obviously broken, not complete, and not adequate. until this year, o.p.m. did not even have the means to debarring persons or falsified background checks, worse o.p.m. i.g. recommended 22 individuals, have received no answer on 14 cases and informed the other eight will not be debarred. something is very wrong. it's unlikely a stricter clearance process would have prevented a deranged individual from committing murder. but this event should be a catalyst for congress to ways they grant access to sensitive material. two problems, one, there is way too much stuff that's classified that doesn't need to be classified. and number two, there's way too many security clearances approved. so if you markedly increase the amount of material that doesn't need to be classified, you have to increase the number of people. we need to address both problems. i look f
